  1. Hey Danny, As it was mentioned above:

    “React Native does not allow localhost for making connections and network requests with a backend that is not hosted on the internet.” That is why we are gertting the IP address and setting is as our base url during development so we can me HTTP requests.

    For example:

    let baseUrl = ‘http://172.29.xxx.223:3000’;

    const {data} = await axios.get(`${baseUrl}/workouts`);

    The ‘3000’ is the port on your local dev server.
